About

Hello! I’m Ruth, the lady behind Purple Tulip, wife and mum to two grown-up sons and a mad dog. I worked in PR, Theatre & Music for over 30 years, involved in creative projects as a writer, producer and performer, always adhering to strict deadlines. It is these skills that I now bring to my role as a Celebrant.


A professional, confident public speaker, I have worked with people of all ages and from all walks of life throughout my professional and personal life. I’m a warm, artistic person who loves learning about other people and their stories.


I am passionate about celebrant-led funeral services and find the work more interesting and fulfilling than anything I have ever done.  My aim is to assist families through some of their darkest times by working sensitively with them to create a meaningful ceremony. I feel so privileged if I can help them to remember and pay tribute to their loved one with a sense of positivity and celebration.


If you're wondering about the name of the company, apart from purple being my favourite colour, the meaning behind purple tulips is "forever love" because, even when someone dies, the love you share always remains.
